Let's face it: relationships are hard.

 

Whether young, old, married, poly, queer or straight, creating deep and lasting intimacy is challenging - but also immensely rewarding. Our childhoods and past experiences deposit us into relationships in which we struggle with familiar, frustrating and painful patterns, and part of creating a successful partnership is examining and working through these patterns in an atmosphere of safety, love and support from your partner. 

 

Couples usually come into counseling because they've reached an impasse: intimacy is lacking, resentment runs high, communication has deteriorated, fighting is frequent, and the more you try to work things through, the more stuck you feel. Whether you need a relationship "tune-up" or you're on the brink of separation, couples counseling  is a smart investment in your relationship and an opportunity to restore the best aspects of your partnership. How I help:

 

  • I help you and your partner identify, communicate, and meet each other's core emotional needs

  • I teach practical communication strategies that will help untangle and resolve common arguments

  • I help you restore intimacy, play, joy and love in your partnership
